With Christmas on Sunday this year, many Lubbock businesses and organizations are closing December 26th and some on December 23rd.

According to my research, most banks will be closed December 26th.

The USPS Post Office as well as FedEx and UPS are closed on December 26th. (Breathing a collective sigh of relief, no doubt!)

City of Lubbock Waste Management has posted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as holidays. A phone call follow-up found that they are observing Christmas on Friday, December 23rd and Monday, December 26th. They'll be closed with no trash collection both days. They said that if you're concerned, you can call to request a pick up before the holiday.

SPEC South Plains Electric Coop will be closed December 26th.
